I passed my driving test first time, with 5 minors, after just 4 months learning with Steve. This a guy who really understands how to teach. Every lesson is pitched to be slightly more difficult than the last so that they feel challenging, but also rewarding as you never feel out of your depth. Steve knows the importance of perfect practice and precision. He instills in you the best possible driving techniques and with his excellent guidance he ensures you keep them up, until they become second nature. I have left his tutelage confident that I am a good and safe driver.
All that aside Steve is just a really genuinely nice and patient person. He is always happy to go back over any of the topics you've covered and answer any questions you might have. I can't thank Steve enough for his help and could not recommend him more highly.
I started learning with Steve last October after an 8 year gap since my last test attempt. I initially had very little confidence in myself and my ability however Steve completely turned this around. He is fantastically patient, he doesn't mind you doing 10 parallel parks until you feel happy. He reduced my anxieties and has made me in to a safe and confident driver. He has real skills in making you feel calm and never pushes you to do anything you are not ready for. Steve has been flexible around my job and degree which I really appreciate. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone learning to drive. You would be lucky to have him as your instructor.
Thank you Steve
Steve is a fantastic instructor who I highly recommend. With his calm and positive attitude I learnt not only to pass my test, but to drive competently and confidently.
The lessons taught me quickly and efficiently. Each lesson was well structured and tailored to my needs.
Upon passing my test (only 3 minors) I was left with the confidence to complete a 340 mile round trip to Somerset and back.
My daughter took her test six times (complete nightmare). She was capable but freaked with the examiner. Steve did a fantastic job with her. She passed due to his skill as an instructor. He calmed the whole thing down and taught her coping strategies to deal with the stress she felt under pressure. We can't thank him enough for his kind endeavor to get her through the test. Much appreciated. She's now confidently driving and hasn't looked back.
Excellent instructor, I highly recommend-helped me pass my test when I never thought I could! I was a very nervous driver and after trying out a few driving instructors I met Steve. An experienced and knowledgeable driving instructor, his amiable personality and calm nature made our lessons enjoyable and taught me so much. He is also very patient! I went on to do my pass plus course with Steve and his advice and insight help me to have taught me sound skills and to become a calm and confident driver.
I began lessons with Steve as an older, nervous driver with some unhealthy learned responses to stress, with fear about driving that had only grown over the years. Steve was very patient and persistent and worked with me at changing my habits and thoughts about getting behind the wheel of a car. I passed my test recently a couple of days before my son's 18th birthday but felt like a new grown-up myself. I thoroughly recommend Steve as an instructor as he is passionate about teaching, learning processes but also having good drivers on the roads.
